If you were born after 1983, you are part the millennial generation. Typically highly educated and tech-savvy, but also stereotyped as lazy and unpunctual, the Generation-Y employee has many obstacles to face in today’s downturn economy.
The millennial cohort is also considered part of the “me-generation.” With the rise of social media, Generation-Y’s are described to be generally more narcissistic than their senior counterparts. They are also more accustomed to using digital technology and prefer a flexible work environment to fit their creative and ever-changing work habits. Despite such overwhelming obstacles, millennials have the amazing opportunity to grow in such an exciting technologically-advanced time.
